Multi-Fuel High Lumen Flashlight Features Right-Angle Design
Streamlight, Inc., has introduced the POLYTAC 90X USB multi-fuel, right-angle personal light that delivers 500 lumens and uses a Streamlight SL B-26 protected USB rechargeable Lithium-ion battery pack.
This is a complete rechargeable system that includes a rechargeable battery with integrated micro-USB port. The light can also accept two 3-Volt CR123A disposable lithium batteries. This multi-fuel capability enables users to charge the light ‘on the go’ or to insert cell batteries when a charging source is unavailable.
“The PolyTac family of lights is among our most popular with fire and rescue personnel because of their extreme brightness, compact size and exceptional durability,” commented company VP, Sales and Marketing, Michael F Dineen. “This newest addition features a 90° head, multiple attachment methods and multi-fuel battery technology, giving users the ability to power and recharge the light through convenient USB recharging or via disposable batteries. Whether conducting rescue operations, investigating fire scenes or signalling others during emergencies, it’s ideal for first responders.”
The new light includes an integrated carabiner-style D-ring clip and a multi-position, reversible pocket clip that attaches to MOLLE, turnout gear, harnesses and a variety of mounting positions. It is also available with a Gear Keeper retractor for attachment to gear, clothing or equipment. The Gear Keeper system features a high-strength nylon tether with a 36in extension and 6 oz of retraction force.
The PolyTac 90X USB features the latest in power LED technology for extreme brightness. When using the SL-B26 USB Li-Ion battery pack, it delivers 500 lumens and runs for 3.75 hours on high. It also provides 500 lumens and a run time of 2.5 hours on the high setting when using CR123A batteries. A battery indicator built into the on/off button flashes red when battery recharging or replacement is needed.
Featuring a multi-function, head-mounted push button switch that is easy to operate with gloved hands, the light is made from high-impact, super-tough nylon polymer with textured grip. It features an IPX7-rated design that makes it waterproof to 1m for 30 min and is impact-resistant tested to 2 metres.
